Not resolved

I have a disabled son that is 9 years of age that has been discriminated against because he's obese he has a Bardet Biedl syndrome that causes him a lot of medical problems, the young man that takes the money at the gate was very rude ,when i told him that we want to see Monster University one adult and two children he asked how old were they , i told him that they're both 9 years old i asked how much did i need to give him and he told me, i gave him my money , he said very nasty yeah right they're twins!! I said no my son is disabled that's why over weight & i don't appreciate him saying that, then he throw my money on my dash and to us to leave i said no we want to see the movie he said your not seeing anything get out !! I said i want to talk to the manager!! He said it ain't no manager get out exit now .

I told him that if he don't get the manager i will as i opened my hummer door he told the police to make me leave, i told him to get the manager i want to talk to the manager . I was told to move to a parking shot out of the way so i did . The manager came out with the employee tell he his side of the story . I told her that this has happen to us before the employee was talking over me tell he that he didn't say the things i was trying to tell her . He kept telling her to tell me to leave and not to let us in, i asked her to please look at my son he was sitting in the front seat next to me, i turned on the overhead light i pleaded with he to look at him i told her that he has a disability and sick that's why he's over weight . She look at me and said i had to pay for two adults and one child i asked he why she said because he's not 9 ! I told he that he was she said pay for two adults or leave now there's the exit then she told the police who was standing their listening the make me leave ! My son screamed all the way home because he didn't understand why he could not see the movie. I felt we were belittle and made to feel helpless.

Naw, I think she was trying to sneak a 14 year old in for a child's price and got pissed that they caught on to her scam. After all, she has to save money to make the payments on that "hummer" that she made sure we all knew she has.

If you don't speak any better than you write, they might not have understood you.Is you son tall for his age, too.

That might have something to do with it. Another solutions would be to carry copies of your kids birth certificates with you, when you are going places that require proof of age.

It might be worth the cost.
